I took dd 15mths to the gp and got a different doc as the one we saw when she had her eczema breakout was no longer working there....
Anyways, he didnt understand how severe it actually was - broken skin, weaping, red welts even bleeding. She is 95% better and only has a few red blotches that i dab 0.02% cortizine cream on for a couple days and it clears up straight away.
I told the gp this and he said to stop using the cream and do natural alternatives. HELLO???? ummmm, been there dont that, that's why we got onto the hardcore stuff!
Anyways, now i dont know what to do if she has a flare up! as he didnt give me another script for her cream!
she hasnt really had a big flare up for about 5months (touch wood) the cream i was perscribed was woring really well. I only used it probably twice a fortnight if not less.
He said if she flares up do salt baths "pool salt" or a cap full of "clothes bleach" in her bath.....ive never heard of using bleach on a baby's skin?!?! im so not comfortable with that.
I asked him where do i purchase pool salt and he said "i dont know, ask a pool person".
I really hate doctors around here.
I obviously need to see another gp. I guess if she flares up i'll be taking her to the ER and hopefully we will be refered to a skin specialist. As was what i hoped for in the very beginning.
Hope this makes sense, i am a bit frustrated.
Can anyone help me out with the pool salt and bleach thing??? ive never heard of it as a method to relieve eczema flare ups.
